Undergraduate Teaching Assistantships

The Department of Psychological Science offers Psychology Majors teaching experience by participating in PSYC 3808 Undergraduate Teaching Assistantship (3 credits).

Undergraduate teaching assistants (UGTAs) assist faculty with the administration of courses, hold review and practice sessions for students needing assistance. All UGTAs will be expected to meet with the supervising faculty member once a week, attend all class meetings of the course in which they are assisting, hold a minimum of two office hours per week, and complete other activities as requested by the instructor. -- This course may be repeated for credit one time (i.e. students may earn a maximum of 6 credits as a UGTA).

Prerequisites: Psychology Major, Junior standing, overall GPA of 2.75 or above, and a Psychology GPA of 3.0 or above. Preference is given to students who have previously taken and successfully completed the course for which they want to assist. 

Enrolling: The selection process is competitive. Students wanting to become UGTAs should contact the faculty listed in the schedule of classes as PSYC 3808 instructors. If selected as a UGTA, students will be issued a Permit on Banner by the specific course faculty. Students will then need to complete the enrollment process on their Banner account.
